Beaches Of Kutch


Mandvi Beach:

Mandvi City which was once a major port and summer capital of Kutch is well known for its beach and beautiful Vijay Vilas Palace. The grandeur of the palace left me speechless. At some distance from the palace is the Mandvi Beach which is buzzing with tourists all time of the year. It's a lively beach with numerous food stalls, hawkers and entertainers. You could enjoy a camel ride or simply take a stroll on the beach. The only drawback of the beach is its very unclean.

I love Camel rides and never leave a chance to enjoy one.

Pingleshwar Beach:

Hidden in a corner of Kutch lies a beautiful Shiv temple called the Pingleshwar Temple. Just a few kilometers from here is a quaint and serene beach called Pingleshwar. Relatively less popular than Mandvi Beach it has a low tourist footfall. It's not that commercialized. There aren't many hawkers or food stalls around. It's is a place where you could sit an enjoy a beautiful sunset with a loved one.







Pingleshwar is evenloped by these huge wind mills. These windmills make the drive to Pingleshwar even more enchanting.

  1. The less people visit these places, the more beautiful they will be, especially in India. If you see such places in the US, they will be pretty clean.
    Beautiful captures.

  9. Kutch is a lovely place. I was there for two weeks. However, during the Rann Utsav time I found some of the areas pretty crowded and drove away to other part of kutch.

  12. Back in 2000 Mandvi beach was one of the best beaches of kutch and very clean and then Hum Dil De Chuke happened. Guess the price of being a visible corner of India was a steep one :(
